    UMC offers many degrees, including computing degrees such as software engineering and information technology management. International students can study technology alongside many other complementary programs such as cybersecurity, graphic design, programming, finance, health management, international business, marketing, and many others.

    The University of Minnesota Crookston is a great place for international students to prepare for a global marketplace that is running on technology.

    We are located in the heartland of the United States, allowing students to learn advanced computing technologies such as software design and development, networking infrastructure, and cybersecurity while experiencing American culture.

    Information technology management emphasizes learning technologies that will generate business value, such as programming, network planning, IT security, tech support, marketing, and project management.

    Software engineering students focus on Agile software development as they learn the software development lifecycle through requirements, design, development and testing of software. Students will learn multiple programming languages as they learn best practices for developing software for industries such as business, the web, medical, health, and gaming.

    Our students either continue on to graduate school or are employed in computing careers such as full-stack software developers, cybersecurity, IT management, web development, database, IoT / smart systems development, game development, software testing, data analytics, and more.

    Even though technology is getting to be very global the US still is setting the standard and it is to the advantage of international students to learn in the environment that has a great focus on new technology.

    As such a global subject, the more international students are exposed to other cultures the better it is for them. I think that the US is a safe place for them to experience new cultures.

    With a computer science degree you can pretty much go wherever you wish to find employment. There is a great demand all over the world and the pay is very good.
